In the Universe, everything is constantly changing and we can see the outcome of those movements through all aspects of our life. The example would be the night turning into a day, or when our rest interferes with activity when adolescence becomes adulthood and so on. Additionally, understanding those opposites will help us achieve complete physical and mental harmony. Our ancestors knew that these flows of energy have a big impact on everything, not just in the Universe, but in their everyday life. Different nations called those electromagnetic flows differently: in China, they called it “Chi”, in Japan “Ki” and in India “Prana”. Our ancients had the knowledge to feel and recognize those energy flows and as a fact, we can even today observe their monumental buildings and monuments which are placed in special places they believed to be at the intersection of energy flows.
In addition, this applies to our everyday life. When you feel that something is wrong, that your life turned upside down, or that your money, "flies out" of your pocket, if you start thinking that you’re cursed then you should defiantly read this book to find out how can you reverse all bad things that are happening to you lately by applying some basic rules based on Feng Shui concept.
Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese philosophy based on harmonizing life with the forces of the Universe. To understand how the energy from the environment affects you, you need to know how it moves through your body. Energy flows through the body very similarly to blood. Blood carries oxygen and nutrients, and energy “carries” ideas, feelings and desires. Therefore, what you think and above all the place where you think about your desires or ideas will have a direct effect on your life.
It was confirmed long ago that the influence of our mind has an impact on our physical health. Many people have experienced the benefits of positive attitude only by thinking more positively, or even recovered from some serious illness. To achieve this overall wellbeing – including better social status, happiness, financial well-being and more pleasure in life, you should just apply the knowledge of our ancestries that is based on Feng Shui principals.

Few ancient works have been as influential as the Meditations of Marcus Aurelius, philosopher and emperor of Rome (A.D. 161–180). A series of spiritual exercises filled with wisdom, practical guidance, and profound understanding of human behavior, it remains one of the greatest works of spiritual and ethical reflection ever written. Marcus’s insights and advice—on everything from living in the world to coping with adversity and interacting with others—have made the Meditations required reading for statesmen and philosophers alike, while generations of ordinary readers have responded to the straightforward intimacy of his style. For anyone who struggles to reconcile the demands of leadership with a concern for personal integrity and spiritual well-being, the Meditations remains as relevant now as it was two thousand years ago.
In Gregory Hays’s new translation—the first in thirty-five years—Marcus’s thoughts speak with a new immediacy. In fresh and unencumbered English, Hays vividly conveys the spareness and compression of the original Greek text. Never before have Marcus’s insights been so directly and powerfully presented.

With Ed Servais, Creighton University Head Coach; 3-time Missouri Valley Conference Coach of the Year; NCAA Record .984 Team Fielding Percentage. From the weight room to the field, Ed Servais and his team provide a candid look into what has made the Creighton University baseball program a consistent championship contender. Coach Servais delivers two days of live fall practices that will improve your players' and provide you with structure, organization and a competitive drill progression series to incorporate into your practices. Day One: Coach Servais and his team go through an intense and progressive team and individual practice session divided into five main phases: The Stretch, Baserunning, a concentrated Throwing Program, Team Defense, Individual Defense, and an Offensive Team Workout. His "progression style" practice focuses on time efficiency and forcing the players to make quick decisions on the fly. Coach Servais' throwing program progresses from the ground up and isolates every element of the throw, proper mechanics and places a high concentration on accuracy and keeping the "ball off the ground." This is the basis of his defensive philosophy. In the 40-minute Team Defense segment, Servais' team demonstrates high intensity drills designed to minimize your opponent's running game and small ball strategies while maximizing your team's effectiveness at outfield communication, cuts, relays, double play feeds and pivots. This session also includes Servais' combo drill (utilizing the whole team); situation drills that feature game-like sequences challenge your players baseball skills and their mental awareness, individual group progressions for catchers, middle and corner infielders, outfielders; and a timing drill. Day Two: The day begins with an inside look at Creighton's strength training program. Led by Creighton's Strength Coach, the team performs a series of baseball-specific exercises designed to improve strength and explosiveness. 280 minutes (2 DVDs).

One of the world's most famous and influential books, Meditations, by the Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius (A.D. 121–180), incorporates the stoic precepts he used to cope with his life as a warrior and administrator of an empire. Ascending to the imperial throne in A.D. 161, Aurelius found his reign beset by natural disasters and war. In the wake of these challenges, he set down a series of private reflections, outlining a philosophy of commitment to virtue above pleasure and tranquility above happiness.
Reflecting the emperor's own noble and self-sacrificing code of conduct, this eloquent and moving work draws and enriches the tradition of Stoicism, which stressed the search for inner peace and ethical certainty in an apparently chaotic world. Serenity was to be achieved by emulating in one's personal conduct the underlying orderliness and lawfulness of nature. And in the face of inevitable pain, loss, and death — the suffering at the core of life — Aurelius counsels stoic detachment from the things that are beyond one's control and a focus on one's own will and perception.
Presented here in a specially modernized version of the classic George Long translation, this updated and revised edition is easily accessible to contemporary readers. It not only provides a fascinating glimpse into the mind and personality of a highly principled Roman of the second century but also offers today's readers a practical and inspirational guide to the challenges of everyday life.
